If you are not interested in discovering who will play Conan’s father in the upcoming movie, it’s too late! (sorry Russell)

For the rest of you, word on the Intardwebz has Mickey Rourke donning the fur underwears and teaching Conan the way of Crom in the upcoming Conan movie to be directed by Marcus Nispel.  Rourke has had a huge comeback in films recently starting with his performance in Sin City and moving through The Wrestler and the upcoming Iron Man 2 to name a few.

He’s still in talks according to the source, which means it might happen and it might not, but I wonder how Rourke would be hammering away at some steel and discussing the ways of the world with young Leo Howard?

    Is it just me, or does every Mickey Rourke photo look like a mugshot of Satan?

    To be fair I think that might actually be a mugshot.

      If it is, it may be where he was charged with wearing that shirt.
